Hi TracyWHI: It's an original piece of art from Philly artist Steve Powers (he used to be called ESPO back in his graffiti days) This particular one is part of his series of murals that he has done in Philly.

Here is the link of all murals. (the project was called "A love letter for you")

Also, it is the same artist that did the arrow/hand print in the living room and the print above the bed.

Hi Experiment: Interesting points! We try to keep everything fairly clean and tucked away but, hey, we live here and can't have everything perfect. Thank you for the tip though!! Fortunately, our cats don't bother with hanging cords or wires. One cat loves rattan and the other LOVES upholstery hahaha.

As for the built in shelves in the back, you're right, it is connected to an office (built in desk, with chair and tons of little windows) There is actually a french door back there as well that lead out to a little balcony with herb garden boxes and trellis. Jess did a wonderful job taking photos but you can't show them all you know!!

Ju - We have some brazilian friends here and Andreas went to Brazil for work while filming mini movies for the Cachaca company Sagatiba. While there he bought a lot of the little "spirit" based brazilian items.

I think the best way to keep your sanity is to realize that projects are bound to go wrong. I used to try to do projects in one day and get really frustrated when they didn't work out. It's OK to FAIL. Once you realize that and you approach a project in smaller steps, the process becomes so much more enjoyable enjoy.

My wife and I hung a ceiling drum shade, it took us all day. Not more than 5 minutes after project completion the wire nut fell off, and exploded both the light canopy and the dimmer switch. On top of all that the ceiling plaster chipped leaving a hole outside the canopy.

Laughing about it both brings us joy now. Learning that the next weekend it was ok to take our time and do things right and laugh about our incompetence, was a great lesson.
